Upfront is celebrating 20 stunning years at Melbourne International Comedy Festival!

The queens of comedy are poised to bring their A-games for this super special 20th anniversary bash, with oodles of prime material and a special slathering of sass. Those in-the-know know the Upfront ladies are not shy about telling it like it is and – given it’s their party – they’ll do what they want to.

Expect expert jokes and a load of laughs, delivered with lashings of lip and wit. So don’t be square – hot foot it to the box office and get your Upfront 20th anniversary tickets before they’re gone. It’s gonna be a blast!
